Thank you very much for your visit.

Dear Scottish and English friends, I place special this photo for you.
I brought the last weekend a visit to Bruges with the bus, no bike, to far.


History of the picture:

The oldest Meebrug and picturesque Peerdenbrug.
What I can tell you is that the Meebrug is the oldest bridge. Originally (in 1290) there was in that place a wooden bridge, Meebrug as she looks now dates from 1390 and is being restored.
The second oldest bridge still remaining, is located a few 100 meters and also brings about the Groenerei, it's the Peerdenbrug. The first mention of a wooden bridge called Peerdenbrug found it in writings from 1392, the bridge as you see them now dates from 1642.
If you have some time reading then certainly a stroll along the picturesque Groenerei in and walk over two bridges, really worth it.
Between the 14th century and now there are many bridges built, two of the most recent two pedestrian bridges are designed for Bruges Cultural Capital of Europe, which was in 2002.
